The Beijing-based firm Crossboundaties – founded by Binke Lenhardt and Dong Hao – designed this urbanscape featuring perforated brick walls, panels of core-ten steel, and mirror surfaces, with the color yellow unifying the ensemble. In the Xiaopu area of the town of Songzhuang, within the Beijing’s Tongzhou District, the ‘micropark’ fosters interaction among neighbors as an open-air place for social interaction. The configuration of the space in an L gives rise to a sequence of carefully designed outdoor ‘rooms,’ including green zones.
